for obama. >> you mentioned the state polls there. this is a question i'm sorting out and you wrote about it in the last few days. the conventional wisdom among the political science crowd is you don't have much variance between where the national horse race stands and where the race stands in the battleground states. if it moves nationally, it moves the same direction in the swing states. we see in this race closer polls nationally where obama will only be ahead by two points or whatever it is, and then you look at ohio and virginia and you see four or five, six, seven point margins. is there any imbalance between the two, and do you have any explanation for it? >> we don't have very many state polls back yet. the initial wave of state polls showed romney doing pretty well in the battleground states. in the rasmussen polls over the last two days, obama is doing better. that's consistent with the trend i talked about earlier. the question is whether obama gets an outsized bounce in states like ohio, nevada and iowa where he was doing better than nationally. if you look at all of the natio

of their israeli neighbors. president clinton's secretary of state, madeleine albright, told reporters on an obama campaign conference call that romney's speech was full of platitudes but no policies. >> there's an awful lot of rhetoric and things, but when you get to the specifics, you kind of don't get the sense that he knows exactly what tools to use and how to operate within an international setting and what the role of the united states is in the 21st century. >> reporter: the obama campaign's reaction to this speech is part of a larger strategy to portray romney as opportunistic and dishonest. it all started right after that debate performance, scott. the old obama campaign might have made little mention of this speech. >> pelley: nancy, thanks. relief may be near for californians paying record high gas prices. there were record low temperatures in some parts of the nation. and it's the beginning of a new chapter in space when the "cbs evening news" continues.in a r j.d. power and associates has ranked quicken loans "highest in customer satisfaction in the nation." call or go to quickenloans

[ laughter ] >> now, of course, we are hearing his excuses and january we will watch him leave the white house. >> mitt romney had to fight off a supporter who was attempting to wipe his face. a poll shows mitt romney about even with president obama in florida. in colorado mitt romney losing ground in the swing state since the debate. a poll found the president is leading by 4 points. that is one point less than a different poll taken before the debate. 80% said they watched the debate. >>> this week the nominees for vice president will go head to head in a
, those three big states were firming up nicely for obama. give us one day or two on that. we promise we'll be watching the three states for you as we move forward. on the topic of debates here, keep this in mind as well this is a big week. we have the vice presidential debate coming up this thursday. that's biden versus ryan here. a week from tomorrow, obama versus romney. and then those two again, two weeks from today, that's the final debate before the election. so mitt romney to the, he gave this 20-minute speech on foreign policy. not exactly one of romney's stronger suits thus far. take a look at yet another poll here. the question being better on foreign policy shows him trailing the president by seven points on that one specifically. wolf blitzer, let's talk to you about all of this. joining me live from washington here. and we'll listen in a moment to that speech from mitt romney at vmi. let me ask you this, why a foreign policy speech this late in the election campaign? do you think he sees some sort of opening here? >> yes, i think that the killing of the american ambassador a

in battleground states polls of obama have been polling ahead of romney and now the dynamic is changing after republicans now feel they have a chance, conservative republicans particularly, are coming along behind romney and they are enthusiastic now. so, i think that the win that was coming out of republican sails is back. >>eric: now, another poll, kind of a score card and it seems to be changings kind of a scoreboard, you can see the early innings, looked like the home team was winning, look at this, 2012 presidential candidate, ill imagine after the first debate, better or worse, governor romney, 56 percent of the people polled say their image of him has increased and president obama only 13 percent. >>guest: that is not surprising. people know who president obama is. they have an idea of their impression of him. romney was still a blank slate to a lost voters. coming up we have a couple more weeks left before voters are fully engaged in this. that debate which was watched by the second or third highest debate ever. >>eric: 67 million. >>guest: 67 million, for many of those people that is
people out there. good they're terrified of the united states. >> bob: about romney? >> greg: spooked about anybody willing to use force rather than -- let's go back. focus on iran. remember in 2009 how president obama reacted to iran. a muted response. then he said he was troubled. his rough stance was a frown. that is what romney is talking about. >> dana: the other thing, his message to the debate is return america to position of economic strength and growth. if you talk foreign policy, the economic policy matters because you want a strong growing america to become the lender not be the borrower. we're not on that path. romney not saying he could get it done and get us on a better path to be a stronger world player in the future. >> bob: what he said about iran, i would make the sanctions tougher. move the mediterranean fleet up near iran and the pacific fleet near iran, both have been done. >> dana: i thought you said he didn't give specifics. >> bob: he didn't. >> dana: those sound specific. >> bob: he said i'd move the fleets but they're already there. >> dana: we could apply mo
or anything like that, but i was nominated by president obama to be the united states attorney here two years ago. yes, my boss.

'll give you a chance and did you mean to calm the president of the united states barack obama lazy? >> yes. chris: i tried to think what you were thinking as a journalist and someone who knows american history and what you thought of that? >> i was clearly troubled, just using that phrase lazy and attaching it to this president, to any president but to this president had all sorts of resonance and unpleasant echoes. and i just wanted to give him a chance because is he a campaign co-chair. he's not just your average surrogate. this is john sununu. and later that same day, he went on fox and was asked, you don't think there will be a better prepared president obama onstage next week? and he said, quote, when you're not that bright, you can't get better prepared. mitt romney was aggressive but polite. that was a civil debate. this is not, i have to believe what mitt romney wants to be representing himself. >> let's hope not but john sununu said a few weeks ago barack obama was not a true american. he says these things. he will say whatever he thinks. >> it also fits into the grander picture,
. forced upon states. they could not clean up the rolls for many years. barack obama, acorn's lawyer, is now the president of the united states. how interested he think he is in making sure that his friends don't resort to old bat habits and old patterns of behavior? apparently not at all if you judge by the actions of the air called the justice department's. in conclusion, i don't want to go through 2010. we live in perilous times, both in foreign policy and domestic. the last thing this country needs is another dispute about who won the 2012 election. the last thing we need is for this country to be driven a par with allegations of by the corruption or incompetence in which we don't know who the present electives for weeks and when the president is sworn in, half the country is angry and bitter and perhaps is not even see that person as a legitimate. we can clean up the selection process, even starting now just by observing what goes on in the election, making sure election officials are doing their job, by making sure they know someone is watching for voter fraud. activist groups.
eight in a state where president obama's message seems to be the jobs numbers. that's working. improving car sales. car sales up. stock market up. does he have to win, for example, ohio? mitt romney, to win the presidency. can he move the number there is? >> well, i think on an overall question, i would agree with all of you that this is going to be an incredibly close election. i thought that the polls were closing before the debate. the debate certainly helped close them even further. i think you are going to see this come down to a ground game, the traditional door to door person by person ground game. as far as whether you can win without ohio, you know, i think you can. i think obviously doing well out west and colorado and nevada. >> but extremely, extremely difficult, yes? >> well, certainly. of course, it makes it tougher but i think if you look at the polls as of late in ohio they tighten. i don't think this -- i don't think anyone believes on either side this is not going to be the very, very tight race and every single battleground state and across america. i can concede that.
for votes in the battleground state of florida tonight, president obama is once again looking for campaign cash in california. nancy cordes is in los angeles, nancy? >> jeff, these two campaigns are spending such enormous sums of money, close to a billion dollars each so the job of fund-raising is never really done, not even in this last month of the campaign. the president is holding five fund-raisers here in california over the next two days. >> the president arrived in sunny los angeles and headed to an intimate gathering with a dozen high dollar donors plus former president bill clinton. tonight president obama holds a star-studded campaign concert on the play bill jon bon jovi, katy perry and jennifer hudson. the fund-raising push comes on the heels of yesterday's announcement that the obama camp raised $181 million in september. a record month for either side in the 2012 presidential race. the romney campaign has yet to release its september numbers. but officials there say they saw a surge in donations after last week's debate. and raked it in 12 million dollars in less than 48 hour
, ann, were on the campaign trail today in the battle ground state of florida. romney spoke about last week's debate and slammed mr. obama over his health care law and economic policies. florida is among several swing states that hold 29 out of the 270 eelectoral votes needed to win in november. the next debate is set for october 16 in new york. joe biden and paul ryan will take the stage for the first and only debate on thursday. you can watch it all on kron- 4's bay area news channel. >>> ugo chavez of venezuela was reelected. he received around 54% of the note. his challenger only received 44% of the vote. the victory gives chavez another six year term as he tries to transition into socialism. >>> a spokesperson for the border patrol says the agent killed last week opened fire on fellow agents. it happened in arizona. we'll have the video shortly. the border patrol thought his colleagues were armed smugglers and was killed when they returned fire. police and fbi confirmed that is what happened. they are not saying if the dead agent shot first. >>> nice weather for the bay area. chan
was drifting toward obama. certainly if you looked at the battleground states and now you're seeing there is a battleground poll out today, they're neck-and-neck. so i think, a race is on what i would say. bill: i see. what rasmussen was saying last week. give me sunday morning or monday because you need three days of rolling averages to really reflect something that is accurate. but, tony, what gallup is putting out today, they put a post-debate performance question, and they had never seen in their history before seen such a jump or such a one-sided victory going back to 1992, 20 years ago. >> absolutely, bill. this was a game ink thatting moment without a doubt. even the focus groups taken that night were giving results that commentators were saying, we've done focus groups since the beginning of election. never has there been confirmed affirmative support of one candidate as a result of one performance. this is exactly why right now you see the president of and his campaign starting to grasp for straws. they're getting to the point they're getting a little desperate. trying to c
campaign the one i would be worrying about still is ohio because that's a state where president obama is still outperforming his national numbers and ohio could be the device i sieve state once again in the college. patti ann: let's look specifically at president obama's approval rating in the swing states. it is 50/50, right down the middle. >> it is right down the middle. this is still primarily an election about the incumbent, a referendum on him. last wednesday in the debate, mitt romney presented himself as an acceptable alternative. that is helping his numbers overall but the president is still the defining factor in this race. right now americans are split right down the middle whether they want to keep him or fire him. patti ann: talk about that so-called debate bounce that romney got. looking back historically, when a candidate is perceived to have won a debate, how long does that bounce last? >> there has not really been any record of an event like the debate we had last wednesday night. four years ago there was absolutely no debate bounce. eight years ago very modest becaus

strong. >> but according to excerpts of the speech, almost every policy romney will call for, a two-state solution, free trade, going after terrorists in libya, has been pursued by the obama administration. they're out with an aggressive prebuttle. >> reckless. amateurish. that's what republicans called mitt romney's gaffe filled tour of england, israel and poland, when our u.s. diplomats were attacked in libya, showed a lack of presidential character. if this is how he handles the world now, just think what mitt romney might do as president. >> in a statement, liz smith says quote it's clear on every measure, mitt romney fails the commander in chief test. well, just about two hours from now, romney will deliver that speech at virginia military institute. peter alexander is traveling with the romney campaign in lexington, virginia and joins me now and peter, this is a speech that is largely about the middle east. we're not hearing a lot about asia, a lot about russia. this is really going to be focused on syria, iran, libya and afghanistan. is it not? >> yeah, i think you're exactly right
just how big of a punch the obama campaign took. the swing state of michigan is very much in play. mitt romney is in the lead in a national talk it over. >>> also, a second breaking news story i know you have been covering. the jailhouse recording from convicted child rapist and ex-penn football state coach jerry sandusky. you will hear how he denied ever participating in what he terms alleged disgusting acts. all angles on that story ahead. jason carroll is live from the courthouse, where sandusky could be sentenced to life in jail tomorrow. you'll also hear from michael bonny, the lawyer for victim number one and sandusky's defense attorney. those stories and tonight's "ridiculist." a lot ahead at the top of the hour. >> such a bombshell. just shocking. to listen to his voice and how clear and convicted he is in what he says. look forward to it. thank you. >>> want to go to our fifth story "outfront" tonight. love free or die. not live free or die. this thursday's national coming-out day, a day that encourages lesbian, gay, transgender and bisexual people to come out to their loved o

movement since casual good friday. this sunday, october 7 pastors around the united states will violate the law by directly endorsing one of the candidates. it doesn't matter which, either romney or not-obama.
